The Platform was a live period showcase of some of the best high school talent in the nation. During the event, players from the eleven Louisiana teams were some of the best performers of the weekend. In this Prep Hoops Louisiana article, we will review some of the players from the Boot who played well during the live period in Birmingham.

Kyran Ratliff Kyran Ratliff 6'8" | PF Washington | 2022 LA (6’8" / F / LivOn Fleur-de-Lis 17U)

Ratliff lived at the rim during play on the showcase courts at The Platform.  He scored often from penetration from the guards and finished with dunks or layups.  Ratliff used his athleticism to man the paint causing a lot of misses at the rim.  He was either deflecting post entries or blocking shots near the basket and in the mid-range.  For being the main offensive and defensive post presence, Ratliff performed well.  

Corey Chest Corey Chest 6'7" | SF McMain | 2023 State LA (6’8" / F / LivOn Fleur-de-Lis 16U)

One of the most atheltically gifted players in Louisiana got a chance to show his gifts during The Platform.  Chest is a long and lean player who finishes above the rim with flair and power.  He is excellent in transition as well.
